Romantic Garden Wedding at Villa Woodbine

I love it when a couple really personalizes their day, and for this garden romance that meant a nod to their South American heritage. A celebration filled with dreamy blooms from Designs By Sean, it’s easy to get lost in the gorgeous imagery by Merari Photography. See even more pretty details right here.


From Merari PhotographyIf I had to describe Alexis and Abraham’s wedding in three words they would be classic, warm and fun. Alexis and Abraham are both from South America. They wanted to incorporate their cultures into their garden-inspired wedding celebration. Everything from the bridesmaid’s blush gowns to Abraham’s blue suit and bowtie were tied in to make the event as low key but classic as possible. They partied the night away in a garden-inspired reception filled with lush greens and hints of pink and coral. The reception was a South American love fest with lots of flags, traditional hats and shot glasses. At the end, the sweet couple left to party some more on a Colombian Chiva, an artisan rustic Colombian bus.

Glamorous Boca Raton Courtyard Wedding

Oh, to be a guest at this Boca Raton wedding. To experience a day filled with seamless details and old world charm, all nestled in the stunning courtyard of The Addison. Of course, soaking in the florals by Xquisite Events and that Momofuku Milk Bar cake wouldn’t hurt one bit, either. Luckily Kallima Photography captured the whole affair and I can live vicariously in the full gallery here.


From Kallima PhotographyColette and Josh were married outdoors in the courtyard of The Addison. We spent hours photographing them at the Boca Resort and Spa, where they prepared for the day, and did their first look. Trolley’s took guests from the hotel to the venue a mile down the road.

The bride wore a BHLDN wedding gown, and the groom wore a custom one-off suit. Bridesmaids were dressed in various shades of gold and bronze. The reception was full of eye candy. Everything from the wood farm tables draped with seeded eucalyptus, to the signature drink adorned with a gold pom pom stirrer. The Bride carried a heirloom gold sparkle clutch, and the couple had a signature perfume made for them to wear on their wedding day.

The Groom works for Barney’s New York and has impeccable style. These two are a power couple and had friends come from near and far to their gorgeous outdoor wedding at The Addison in Boca Raton Florida. Xquisite provided the florals and event design, and really outdid themselves. The chuppah was covered with seeded eucalyptus, green moss, and roses placed throughout, with white drapery hanging loosely over the edges. Succulents, Anemones, Craspedia and Dusty Miller were on the reception tables. The first dance was held on the stone dance floor underneath twinkling lights. The Bride opted to change out of her stunning and delicate BHLDN gown halfway through the reception, putting on a flirty Cynthia Steffe shift dress. The gorgeous ‘naked’ cake was flanked by a pistachio cake from Momofuku Milk Bar NYC that was to die for.

2nd Birthday Brunch

My love for all things brunch knows no bounds. If it were up to me, I’d indulge in it daily. But since that isn’t exactly in the cards (both for my waistline and my wallets sake), I’m just going to go big every once in a while. And what better reason to do so than on your birthday! With stuffed french toast, balloon place settings and individual parfaits! I have to say, sweet little Noelle is one very lucky lady. With photos from Soo Kim, there’s more right here. 

From Soo Kim Photography… Our daughter just turned two and we decided to celebrate her special day at home instead of throwing a party. It all started with thinking about some of her favorite foods- yogurt, strawberries, hardboiled eggs, milk- and I realized that they are all very much breakfast foods. Throw in some stuffed French toast for the grown-ups and we had the perfect brunch menu!

I didn’t want to spend too much money or time on DIY’ing the decorations, but also didn’t want to skimp on them either. I decided to do just a few DIY touches myself and find a really great backdrop to set the stage. I wanted it to be casual and as the “hostess”, wanted to enjoy the brunch, too, which was something that I did not get to experience in past parties thrown for my kids, as I was such a crazy DIY’er over prepping, knee-deep in crafts, and setting up on the day-of (lol).

It’s always important for me to include party details handcrafted by me. Even though my kids are too young to appreciate all the planning and care that goes into the parties I throw for them, I do it more for myself. Knowing that I did what I could to make the day a little more special for them totally makes it worthwhile. For this particular day, I made her birthday cake, gold-dipped the yogurt and milk jars, and made mini-balloon place holders.

Noelle and her big brother, Jaden, enjoyed the party so much that they asked for another birthday party the day after the party… and the day after… and the day after that as well!
